Yalto
Invented by Edward Ibeh: line 1 to 15:  3,4,2,4,5,3,2,3,2,3,3,5,6,1,5 syllables. Centered, no rhyme required.


Life is a free fall feeling face first into the wind. You can't predict its direction or speed, so, don't try. Enjoy the weightless sensation of flight as you fall. Knowing that someday your flame... will simply blink out. (Yalto) 08,31,2019

I truly enjoyed this free-falling poem, Emile. Perhaps I ought to have a go at parachute jumping, and enjoy the weightless sensation of flight! Congrats on p.o.t.d. award. Regards // paul

Thanks Paul, I appreciate your comments, although parachute jumping is a little too extreme for me my friend, Emile.

Way to capture words as form follows the idea of free fall as well. Loved it!! Yalto is a challenge, and your idea fits it sensationally (literally). Lonna
